I have over 116 public talk outlines provided by the Society. The list of talk titles for outlines provided by the Society is arranged by subject to help the elders more easily identify the public talk outlines that fall into a particular category.It is designed to be used with the S - 99 form.This is for congregation use only.
Here are the Public Meeting Talk Titles Listed by Subject.
Bible / God 10 different talks on this subject.
Christian Standards / Qualities 14 different talks on this subject
Evangelizing / Ministry 5 on this one.
Faith / Spirituality 13 on this one
Family / Youth 10 on this one
Kingdom / Paradise 21 on this one
Last Days / God's Judgment 13 on this one
Religion / Worship 17 on this one
Trials / Problems 6 on this one
World / No Part Of 15 on this one
Most of these subject talks were not directed at the public, they were directed at the rank and file.
For example:Each talk starts with a note to the speaker in a box format at the top of the outline.The first talk on my list is under the subject of " Faith and Spirituality", there are 13 different talks under this one subject. The very first talk listed in the public meeting titles is "How Well Do You Know God", and it is the first one listed under this subject of Faith and Spirituality. Here is what the note to speaker says to the elder given this outline.
"Help audience see that recognizing Jehovah involves much more than knowing facts about him. It means being intimately acquainted with his purposes, deeds, qualities, and feelings. It means acting in harmony with that knowledge and assisting others to do so. Instill burning desire to know Jehovah intimately".
Then the elder proceeds to break this talk down into five sub - sections.
1.We have prospect of eternal life from knowing God. ( 4 mins. )
2.What knowing a person involves. ( 12 mins. )
3.How and why humans can truly know God.. ( 8 mins. )
4.Examine yourself to see how well you know God. ( 14 mins )
5.Help others to join you in knowing God well. ( 7 mins. )
I thought that this information would help explain to many who do not know how the public talk process is put into motion.Who actually writes all these public talks, well, their nameless, its the Society.
Over the years I have given many of these talks as an out - going speaker. As I peruse through my book of public talks I have mixed feelings as to what good was I doing back then knowing what I know now.
